Oshiomhole: Call for military takeover senseless

Former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has stated that the call for a military takeover of the country is senseless.

This was stated by Oshiomhole in reaction to a statement by a senior lawyer, Roberts Clarke who called for power to be handed over to the military.

Speaking with the leadership of Law Students Association of Nigeria (LAWSON) on Friday, Oshiomhole said a military takeover is not the solution to Nigeria’s problems.

“I watched on a national television one of your very senior colleagues, Chief Robert Clarke, I was shocked when I saw him calling on the President to handover to the military,” he said.

“I thought that was the height of irresponsibility, given his knowledge, given his age and a very senior member of the bar and, what is it that he wanted? He wants a military that will restructure Nigeria.

“It is again for me senseless, because the structure as it is today, who put it in place? Who overthrew the parliamentary system?”

Oshiomhole said anyone who suggests unlawful means to effect change should be charged to court.

“You know we have freedom of speech but it does not include the freedom to canvass unlawful means to effect a change. When you canvas unlawful means, then you should be arraigned before a court of law and dealt with according to the law. Ignorance is not even an excuse in law, not to talk of a Senior Advocate of Nigeria,” he said.

The Nigerian military had also reacted to Clarke’s statement, describing it as “anti-democratic”.
